The short life of the choc ice…..

Sometimes only a choc ice will do. Such was the case yesterday evening. It was still hot after a long day of unbroken sunshine and I knew that there were two choc ices in the freezer. A box of them had been bought under the pretext that the grand children would like them. The fact that only two remained was a clear illustration of my wife’s lack of understanding of the word “pretext”. Now there are none.

  1. Appetizing and ingenious! Good Humor could use you to sell ice cream!

    (sounds of loud hungry laughter!)… c

    It’s good to see you’ve adjusted the balance in the freezer – they’d be taking up far to much space in winter πŸ˜‰

  4. Brilliant! I’m surprised they lasted long enough to be photographed

    In order to capture four such great shots I suppose you were obliged to eat them both. That’s the sort of hardship professional photographers must be willing to endure. It’s not all fun and games, people!

  6. This is such a photographer thing to do, snap pictures while enjoying an ice cream. Looks good though.

    Looks delish! Time to replenish inventory…

    Thanks, Roger, for the chuckle and reminder. Mom was forever buying ice cream “for the grandkids”. Funny how it disappeared just as quickly when the grandkids lived 600 miles away as when they lived in the next town.

  9. I’m a Solero girl myself, but that choc ice looks well sacrificed πŸ™‚

  10. I’m more impressed that you had the restraint to photograph between bites.

  11. Eha says:

    That marvellous laughter is at least two frames short πŸ™‚ !

  12. Tandy says:

    Great photos! And perfect choice for any day πŸ™‚

  13. A marvelous moment to laugh out really loudly.Thank you!

    This made me chuckle, because this is how most frozen treats enter and leave my house as well. The photo progression made me chuckle.

  15. Looks like a Dove bar, my favorite. πŸ™‚

  16. All that time in a freezer for this brief, glorious capitulation. It sounds like the perfect plot for a Hollywood film.

  17. Roger, I absolutely adore those. Have since I was a little girl.

    Tell Jenny that choc ice is a always a good “pretext” no matter what!
